I've been on a sort of mini hiatus with the beta and I'm currently downloading it all over again so I hope I'm not out of date but this was in my head all summer.
I was just interested to know though...
Are the ships(excluding fighters/bombers) still sitting stationary and exchanging weapon fire?
Are there any thoughts of the ships having their own AI 'maneuver' routines when engaging the enemy? Or is it unnecessary given how hits/damage is calculated?
I liked the idea of smaller corvettes moving around the capital ships by themselves, keeping themselves as moving targets, albeit in a slower manner than fighters.
